Updated: February Miatas for Breakfast

Date: Saturday, February 17th.

Assembly time: 6:30 a.m.

Assembly location: The Food Lion parking lot at S.C. Exit #5 of I-20. (Just north of the interchange on the west side.)

Departure time: 6:45 a.m. firm

We will take a brisk drive up US-25 and SC-121 to NEWBERRY, S.C. where we will arrive around 8 a.m. for breakfast at “Bill and Fran’s Restaurant” just NE of the SC-34 and I-26 interchange. Afterwards, we’ll return to picturesque Newberry, stroll the quaint downtown area and pound on the shop windows wishing they would open before the rumoured 10:30 a.m., by which time we’ll be back on the road returning via a slightly different route to the Aiken area.

The restaurant is CASH ONLY. Figure $10/person iincluding tip. This is the only place open for breakfast, they will be busy even by 8 a.m. This is where the “sit where we fit” and “defer to regulars” comes in.

In the event of completely uncooperative weather, I have a closer alternative, but the assembly point and time remains unchanged; we’ll decide once we’re ready to roll.

Please bring your CBs, tuned to channel 5. On the way there, we can chat about the sights. On the way back, we can poll for Rolaids.

We should be back to the I-20 area by noon at the latest.

Breakfast Etiquette: Order Breakfast, Sit Where We Fit, Tip your Waitstaff, Defer to “Regulars.”

    For anyone unfamiliar with the ever changing North Augusta scene, the meeting spot is the former Winn Dixie lot next to the Sonic Burger. I believe Food Lion opens for business on Feb. 16, so anyone needing a donut to tide them ’til breakfast…


    We’ll bring a box of Krispy Kremes to the assembly point but you’re on your own for beverage.
